I think I have made my Happiness Engineer unhappy. He hasn’t returned any emails lately.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, read the last couple posts. I would link to them, but that’s part of the problem – I can’t do half the nifty stuff that I used to be able to do. This is just a tad annoying.
So I downloaded that MikScrollingBattleText that was raved about in yesterday’s comments.
So many buffs! And debuffs! And stuff!
There is a list of some reactionary-type things pre-made for me to click on or off, like Missile Barrage. And loot. And cooldowns.
But then there is everything else.
Power Word: Shield. Hospitality. Mirror Image. Arcane Blast.
The list goes on for a very long time and fills up my screen.
I’ve figured out how to suppress individual things as I come across them, pain in the ass.
Anyone know of a better way to handle this? I don’t want to turn off all buffs or debuffs as there is all sorts of stuff I run across that I’ve never seen before and might want to notice. A list of abilities to work off of would be nice.
I’ve run into a quandary with Arcane Blast.
If I change nothing, I get to see pretty purple numbers scrolling over on the side where I have outgoing damage set up. It’s pretty much stock, out of the box configuration over there, just made it scroll up instead of down.
But I also see the teal words informing me that I have 1 stack, now 2 stacks, now 3, etc. in the Notification area.
No problem, right? I’ll just go into the Skill Suppression section under Spam Control and shut that puppy off.
Arcane Blast is both the name of the stacking debuff as well as the name of the spell’s damage source.
Now I can’t see the damage.
I have a sneaking suspicion that the same would happen if I were to add Molten Armor to the suppressed list.
So is there a way to separate the debuff from the damage source?
I don’t care about the stacks, I use something else to track those and I am very happy with that arrangement, but I would like to see the damage from my main nuke. If I can’t see that damage I might as well just turn off that whole freaking side.
Am I asking too much?
